1997 Lincoln Town Car OWNER RATINGS & REVIEWS

New Orleans, Louisiana
The 1997 Lincoln Town Car has performed admirably. It is very reliable, rides smoothly. My particular car has almost 500k on it. Riding in the car is a dream, as it's a smooth, quiet ride. The seats are power, very cushioned, and fully adjustable (up, down, forward, backwards.) The car has a built in garage door opener that can be programmed to your particular garage door. The body is luxurious and sleek. The car is sturdy. The car does, however, burn a tremendous amount of gasoline. It gets the worst miles per gallon of any car I've ever owned. Fifteen dollars worth of gas, with the air conditioner running, only gets you about 50 miles or so. When something does go wrong with the car, it is not entirely cheap, or easy, to repair. The power windows on the car are not reliable and will stop working. The power seats and mirrors, however, still function as normal. To purchase the car new, is extremely expensive. The car is not economical, or I'd imagine, good for the environment, with the big V8 engine.
My Lincoln Towncar
So far, my Towncar had 285,000 miles and counting. I only paid $1,000.00 for it. I change the oil regularly. It averages about 20 miles a gallon. The air bags went out. And I spent over$1,000.00 trying to fix them. That didn't work so I had to install a strut and spring conversion kit. Mechanically, there is nothing won't with the car. The only thing under the good I have replaced is the thermostat and a serpentine belt. Changed the antifreeze a few times. Replaced the ball joints. Had to replace the rear shaft drive this summer. Then put new wheel hub assembly on front. Car cover is coming off. And the ceiling is coming apart.
